Your Outreach Committee identifies a Ministry to focus on each month. They provide information through the web, newsletter and bulletins about how you can participate. To donate, please place your contribution (make your check out to Anoka UMC) in an envelope found in the pews, or in your offering envelope, and mark it with the name of this month’s ministry. 

The Sheridan Story

Helping stamp out childhood hunger

More than 200,000 children in Minnesota live with food insecurity. Without reliable access to food – such as meal programs at school – the risk of hunger is very real. The Sheridan Story works to combat hunger in our community by providing food for students to take home each weekend of the school year.

Thank you for your continued support of this UMCA community service.
